Kudos to you for the help with my other problems. Since you did such a good
job I have a new one for you.

This little nasty boy has infected my laptop.

So far Iam unable to get rid of it or even boot
into safe mode!


Thank you very much

What version of Norton Anti-virus are you using? NAV has the ability to detect unknown viruses of various types using heuristic algorithms known as Bloodhound. See here. Bloodhound is not the name of a virus, but a message displayed by NAV when it thinks it may have found a new virus.

From what I have read this can also happen if the virus detection technology is set too high so you may want to reset Bloodhound to its default settings and try scanning again. From personal experience when I used NAV in the past I have found some of the Bloodhound alerts to be a false positive.

Get a second opinion by performing one of these online Virus scans:
